5 Healthy Meal Replacement Smoothies Recipes – Fruit, Veggies, Protein – Mind Over Munch

5 Healthy Meal Replacement Smoothies Recipes – Fruit, Veggies, Protein – Mind Over Munch


*gasp* I forgot to eat! And now I’m late! I really should eat a meal… Ah, yes! Ugh… Hey munchies! I’m Alyssia if you’re new, welcome to
the channel! Today I’m going to do something I’ve never
done before– MEAL REPLACEMENTS. I am not generally for meal replacements,
I like to eat more than I like to drink beverages, so I usually choose food I have to chew over sip. BUT, sometimes I’m in a rush or in an on-the-go
situation and, in those cases, a drink can be an efficient way to get in a healthy meal. Rather than skipping meals, keep your body fueled with a healthy meal replacement smoothie and fill you up. First of all—NO, I don’t mean actually
blending up meals like you saw in the intro, BUT… A lot of people use regular smoothies as meal replacements, but those aren’t really “meals.” So, when developing these recipes, I thought about what MAKES a meal for me. So I like to have some fruits, some vegetables, AND some protein and grains, so you will see some funky ingredients in these smoothies. But fret not– I tested them all to make
sure they’re tasty, and often, those ingredients are so sneaky you can’t even detect them. First up is the Berry Refreshing Protein Smoothie! The ingredients you will need are almond milk, coconut water, frozen strawberries, cucumber (which adds a refreshing flavor AND nutrients), tofu (for a boost of protein), honey, and ice. Smoothies are EASY—just blend everything up! I love using frozen fruit in my smoothies
because it means I need LESS ice, if any at all! This smoothie is cool, fresh, and you’ll
never know that the tofu is there to make it a heartier meal! Next up is my Sweet Potato Carrot Pie smoothie…one of my favorites! The ingredients you will need are nut milk
of choice—if you can find walnut or pecan milk, those are fun flavors that vibe with the rest of the ingredients, but any kind of milk will really do—carrot juice, roasted
sweet potato cubes, whole carrots, Greek (or coconut milk yogurt for vegan), vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, honey, and ice. I honestly don’t need the honey in this
smoothie, since this is a “meal replacement” I don’t need too much sweetness, but I know a lot of people are more accustomed to having SWEET smoothies, so feel free to adjust to your preference. Don’t get too caught up in smoothie recipes—you don’t really NEED one. Add liquid to thin or add ice to thicken and just go with it! We HAD to have a green smoothie, and today I am sharing this Avocado Banana Smoothie! The ingredients you’ll need are almond milk, cooked quinoa (which is a surprising smoothie ingredient but integrates really well, while
also adding nutritious carbs and protein), a frozen banana (and remember– the more brown spots, the sweeter it will be!), avocado, spinach, and maple syrup to sweeten if needed. I almost think it’s a sin to NOT add spinach to a smoothie because you literally would never know it’s there, if it weren’t turning
your smoothie bright green! What an easy way to add in those veggies! This smoothie covers all of the groups we
mentioned earlier in a deliciously sneaky way! Don’t forget to hit that subscribe button
and the bell so you are notified each week of new content! We’ve got new goods coming for you all the time! Next I’ve got a cheeky Blueberry Coconut
Smoothie. The ingredients you will need are coconut
milk, blueberries, cooked beets, white beans, coconut sugar, and coconut shreds. Now those are some wacky ingredients—beets
and beans? I know! But don’t knock it ‘til you try it…
honestly, the beans add a great, thick texture and the beets flavor is slight, but adds beautiful color. It’s always more fun to eat more beautiful
foods! The last one I’ve got for you is my
Vanilla Almond Pr-OAT-ein Smoothie… get it? Pr-OAT-ein? Because there are oats? The ingredients you will need are almond milk, protein powder (you could use vanilla flavor OR plain), cauliflower florets—say whaaaat? Don’t worry… oats, almonds, and a fresh
vanilla bean. If you use sweetened protein powder, you won’t need any sweetener, but if you use plain you may want some. The fresh vanilla bean makes this one feel
very gourmet, and I promise, you won’t even know the cauliflower is there! Thumbs up for including fruits, veggies, proteins, AND grains in your smoothies! THAT is how you replace a meal. If you found this video fun or useful feel
free to share it! And a BONUS to my loyal Munchies who stick around—you know I love you—I’ve got ANOTHER smoothie on my Facebook page today. It is a Chunky Monkey smoothie with an unexpected ingredient… check it out at facebook.com/mindovermunch. If you have any favorite smoothie recipes,
feel free to share them in the comments below! I will see you next week, and remember! It’s all a matter of Mind Over Munch.

    Hi Alyssia, this is a great idea for me because I'm Intermittet fasting and sometimes I find really hard to eat enough food in my eating window without feeling stuffed and disgusting. I wonder if you have the Macros for the smoothies, that would be even more helpful!

  • Little Britian

  • Erica Payne

    holy crap… tofu in a smoothie… That's genius! I'm terrified of protein powder but I love tofu so this is awesome!

  • Lulu

    I found my blender isn't powerful enough to break up oats all the way in a smoothie (it comes out splintery), so I've been experimenting. Last time, I got good results by grinding the oats into a fine powder in a coffee grinder, then adding enough water to moisten and letting it sit in the fridge for a while to let it absorb. It made a nice sticky paste that blended right in and was easier to digest. Next time I want to see what happens if I just blend in the powder, skipping the water step. Don't know if that will affect the digestibilty or not.

  • Maria Ullah

    drinking beans is hard 😗😯

  • Suzanne Carbonaro

    Hi Alyssia, I'm so glad I found your channel. You have so many great ideas on how to make veggies easier to eat. I have ARFID and my problem is mostly with texture. I'm also gluten intolerant. I'd love more recipes where I can incorporate more disguised veggies in my diet. For winter it was easy as I'd blend them all into soups and season them well but now that summer is coming, it's more difficult as it will be too hot to eat soup. Any tips and recipes would be greatly appreciated <3 Really love love love your videos!

  • eliyanora animalia

    You got subtle winks going on 😄

  • Naomi Hukes

    Like the white bean idea, I'm vegan, so a goo source of vegan. Like your smoothie, you've gotten me into smoothies
